Parkinson’s Disease Resulting in SSD Benefits
Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects the brain’s functions. There is currently no cure and according to the National Parkinson Foundation, 50,000 to 60,000 people are diagnosed each year. The Social Security Administration (SSA) does recognize Parkinson’s disease in its list of impairments. Specifically, it is recognized as a neurological impairment (as Parkinsonian syndrome), with the following signs under 11.06:
“Significant rigidity, bradykinesia, or tremor in two extremities, which, singly or in combination, result in sustained disturbance of gross and dexterous movements, or gait and station.”
We will help you, with the help of a qualified medical professional, document these symptoms and how they affect your daily life and submit a proper application to the SSA.
Honesty Is the Best Policy
While we will do everything we can to help you create a convincing application with supporting medical evidence and documentation, we will do so with detailed accuracy. We believe honesty is the best policy. The last thing you should do is mislead your doctor about your condition. Our advice is to be completely honest about the effects Parkinson’s disease has had on your life and follow through on your doctor’s orders regarding future care, treatment, referrals and prescriptions.
